On August 25, 2012....I lost my Dad to C.L.L. an incurable form of cancer. Since 2006, I have been fundraising for cancer research in honor of BOTH of my parents and their cancer battles. My 15th half marathon was run on the day that my Dad passed away (picture above). I cried most of the race, knowing that I was not going to be able to save his life. He was not expected to make it through that weekend and he passed away a few hours after I completed the run.
People are very tired of me and my fundraising by now. Sorry guys!! They have been hearing from me for years. If I didn't believe in this cause and believe that a cure could be found, I wouldn't keep doing it.
I wasn't able to save my Dad's life.....but maybe I can help to save my Mom's or someone you know and love.
Please support this cause. Every dollar helps. It doesn't matter how large or how small. IT ALL COUNTS. IT ALL HELPS. It means the world to me to have the constant support of friends, co-workers and family members. It has affected me & my family greatly and I would hate to see it affect yours too.
